Last day of Pri 1...

Today is the last day of school and RaeAnne's school prize giving ceremony. Surprised that she did well enough to be among the Top 10 in the level. Top 2 in fact. Actually, she didn't do well for her Term 4 tests. Didn't get full marks for Eng and Maths, only Chinese.

So I was surprised that she ended up being No. 2 in class and level. Maybe her Term 2 and Term 3 results were ok so it helped improve her aggregate score. I really didn't expect it so I took leave for Mufti yesterday so could only take a few hours time off today. Lol.

She also won Artist of the Class and was given a trophy on Tuesday. Drawing is her interest but she has little time to do it since entering Primary 1 except the weekly art class and her art enrichment. In CC, she used to doodle all the time and pass me her drawings.

Happy and proud of you RaeAnne. Work hard next year for Pri 2! :)

Proud of you, RaeAnne!

RA has always been a quiet and reserved gal. From CC to Primary school, her teachers have commented that she should speak up more, and be more active in class discussions. She has never performed on stage alone so far.

Last week, her FT msg me and her Bestie's mummy if both of them will like to participate in Fashion Channel, a dress up costume show and this year's theme is on Inventions and Inventors. Both gals were a bit reluctant but both mummies thought it was a good experience and exposure so we managed to convince them.

So I researched and thought of the Ice Cream Maker's female inventor Nancy Johnson since we have 2 gals. Valerie's mummy came up with many good ideas on how to make the costumes, props and make the show interactive. We met up 3 times to research, make the props and rehearse within the week.

Today was the big day, last minute we had to change their catwalk cos there was no rehearsal for the kids. RaeAnne was very nervous when she went on stage but I was very proud that she overcame her fears. She spoke clearly and loudly and her friend was good too. When they pulled out the ice cream from the ice cream maker, the audience clapped. It must have impressed the judges. Because RA won Best dressed and the two gals both won the Best prize for Primary 1 level. So happy for them.
